Finally, our second issue is almost here! Following in the footsteps of the inaugural issue of The Bleeding Lion, this one is also filled with strong and powerful pieces. As always, we were quite overwhelmed with submissions, and we are thankful for each and every one of you.
Here are some previews until you await the official release for the second issue: Sarah Lilius’ Cooking into the Night, Francine Rubin’s Amaranthine, and Jaimie Gusman’s Shipping, route to Honolulu are great poems that combine TBL’s need for unique and original work, with macabre undertones and vibrant voices.
For prose, you can get started with Joyce Goldenstern’s deliciously odd story, Troubled Wing: Be Slow to Heal Me, Cherita Harell’s poignant and eloquent Crucible and Alan Hlad’s Garden of Remembrance.
You can read these pieces in full in the second issue of The Bleeding Lion: A Journal of Contemporary Arts & Letters, out soon.
And yes, we are still reading for our Winter issue, submit your work now!
